The Gods of Ancient Egypt -- Hike


Other Names: Heka

Patron of: magic and medicine (though to the ancient Egyptians, they were one and the same).

Appearance: A man carrying a magic staff and a knife, the tools of a healer.

Description: Hike is the son of Khenmu and Menhit, though he is also said to be the eldest son of Atum (possibly due to Atum and Khenmu being associated with one another). Though he had no formal worship, his favor was beseeched by doctors and other healers, who were called "priests of Hike."
